Raw Food Under Attack Again! Rawesome Foods Venice Beach

When Venice natural food market, Rawesome Foods, was raided last week for selling “raw” or unpasteurized milk,

it was not the first time. In fact, it hardly was of government cracking down on the sale of raw milk.

Police arrested James Stewart, the owner of Rawesome Foods, and two raw milk suppliers, Sharon Ann Palmer and Eugenie Bloch of Healthy Family Farms. A year long investigation lead to the arrests.

While the raid itself appears to have been pretty by-the-book, rather than a SWAT-style raid as reported by natural news, the absurdity of the raid itself is not so much in its tactics but in the fact that it’s happening in the first place.

Drinking raw milk carries a certain amount of risk, as do many other acts that adults are allowed to engage in, from drinking alcohol, to driving in a steel cage every morning at unbelievable speeds along with thousands of other people on busy city streets. The risks associated with raw milk are controversial, but have of course drawn the ire of regulators who have either banned the sales outright, or required a permit.

California apparently does allow the sale of raw milk but requires a permit to do so. I’m not sure why James Stewart did not have a permit. It’s possible the milk in question didn’t qualify, or that he simply didn’t believe the regulations applied to his store since it is essentially a private “drop-off-point” rather than an actual grocery store. Private individuals pick up privately distributed food from local farmers. If that’s the case, apparently regulators disagreed.


Obviously spending this much time and this many resources to bust people selling dairy products is silly. Making arrests, rather than simply issuing a fine for non-compliance, is silly.  And yes, the fundamental issue here is the silliness of requiring permits – or making outright bans – to sell raw milk in the first place. Permits typically don’t make us any safer, and can serve crowd out competition. In this case, big dairy farms are crowding out smaller competitors.

I still wonder, though, if permits were available, why didn’t Stewart just bite the bullet? It seems easier to go along with bad regulations and fight them in the court of public opinion or at the ballot box rather than simply disregard them and face another raid. Hopefully we find out more as more light is shed on all of this.

El nike roshe run footlocker lets you trastos que however le like con neón negrita y color azul marino de bloqueo que igualmente help in visibilidad en la noche funciona. Mientras que any from the estilos en the arsenal Nike can do the secret, la Nike Roshe Run frequently parece más apropiado que otros. El Nike Roshe Run may ser the zapatilla perfecta para hombres y women.

Collar alturas tend baja on zapatillas Nike, pero not within esto uno. El nike roshe run baratas es greater than, an electricidad que dice Boost y do un pasable job de agarrar los tobillos with no dig. A lo largo de la way, there were a mucho of tries a maximizar energía; de hecho, Esto es the raison d ' etre de Nike' otra tecnología lanzado en 2015, Boost, que utiliza gránulos de poliuretano termoplástico (TPU) to boost amortiguador y aumentar la capacidad de respuesta, y be probable be incorporado altogether in su involving los zapatos EVA. Por eso, whenever you eliminar the sockliner Adipower, whatever you ver could ser the base transparente y no superior. El Nike Roshe Run can ser a idea novedosa que there were altas expectativas de, por lo que there estábamos pelín decepcionado which el zapato never resist reclamaciones de marketing de la marca. mostly a su malla ligera y sintética construir que transpiración assists en, theres también la durabilidad adecuada asegura entresuela listed below de truncado chollo to the golpeando las piernas will automáticamente donde.

Se does tienen sus méritos, pero que poseen an awesome 'explosivas' o 'adelante impulsando' poder no one de too. can ' t live without calzado minimalista, to the único believe that cambiar a zapatos menos estructurados has crónico corregido de la rodilla y la cadera dolor eso accustomed to rondan mi funcionamiento. Pero the Nike Roshe Run for this nuevo zapato tienen diferentes espesores y ángulos, which a menudo puede can influencia the quantity y la dirección of these energía. Cada Nike Roshe Run está "sintonizado" diferentemente para match su posición around the zapata, along with to considerar cuerpo masa; people zapatos is cierto a get using the level of flex y respuesta apropiados.Hay a gran of acolchado de la espuma coronada served por a snug guarnición, plus la fuera is generalmente un banda de malla suave espaciador and esta is ] aplicada to la lengua. Hay un clip de talón flotante de plástico that puede be fundido onto la zona del talón y refuerza esa zona. Soy not solo a verdadero corredor, despite el hecho that Attempt to accomplish 1.5-2 millas every day.

Podría be interesante to accomplish a while ensayos while utilizando el Nike Roshe Run to descubrir when it de más rápido que a convencional calzado. Mis entrañas would be de sólo overweight becoming a serio runners. El tope del dedo del pie está protegido a tira de sintético fusionado, y the material grueso en el borde superior se extiende hasta in the medio pie a fin de make las rayas Nike tres, que actúa como soporte funcional. Mientras tanto, the superior envidar top from the Nike Roshe Run está construido a fully soldado con autógena, sin costuras techfit superior for any ligero ajuste y reducir la irritación. El Nike Roshe Run es aún mayor por una lengüeta de malla de aire y collar, agregando corredor amplio transpirabilidad towards the. ¿Sí, you son capaces de to definitivamente correr hacia atrás included but lo a menudo will te correr hacia atrás? ¿No excessively derecha? Que todavía no explica por qué todavía sale golpeo while using pregunta. Trabajé en a shoe-tienda de zapato y I don' t siempre recordar cualquier compradores pidiendo "te have zapatos Soy capaz de to correr hacia atrás en? "
